About This Quiz

Sports played with a ball are often very popular. This is certainly the case with basketball, worldwide played by women and men, managing to get lots of fans worldwide.A sport played between two teams aiming to score points through accurate shots of the ball inside a fixed basket, raised on a mast and located at both ends of the court, became very popular. The sport is one of the most played in schools and colleges. It is a very common activity among children and teenagers and may also be a door to a great life in the professional league.James Naismith created the game in 1891. Because of the intense cold in the winter season, sports such as baseball and football played outdoors were less popular in the coldest seasons of the year, hence the need to create a sport that could be played on an indoor court.

There are many types of NBA fans. Some just watch the games, some will also take notes of everything which happens in the league, and others breathe and exist for the game. It is amazing how a sport can captivate so many people of all ages and different cultures. Some players were so legendary that, indirectly, they ended up becoming the symbol of the league. With Jordan in the early 2000s, the NBA became more engaged with the community and became even more popular abroad. The player even contributed to this by signing with Nike and creating his line of sneakers, the famous Air Jordan. In addition, the NBA legend was the protagonist of the 1996 film Space Jam.

Fashion is present in the day-to-day life of the NBA. We always see the players arriving at the gymnasiums and also in the interviews after the matches showing their styles, sometimes quite strange, let’s face it. From Russell Westbrook’s most exotic shirts, James Harden’s hats, and Kobe Bryant’s classic style.

While basketball and fashion go hand in hand, fashion on the court has also changed a lot over the past few years. Teams like Suns, Nuggets, and Hawks have changed radically with new logos, different colors, and everything. The Lakers, Bulls, and Celtics practically remained classics as the beginning of their stories. Some prefer the simpler and more classic shirts, while others really like the uniforms of the big stars of the moment.
